Bài 1- Chúng ta là ai?

In this unit, the students are learning about colors, numbers and name of some countries and their family members. From that they can use simple sentence structures to introduce themselves, say what they like and what they do on their birthday. The students are engaged in different activities such as capturing the flags, color race, hopscotch… to practise the learnt language items.
